Asian EFL Journal: Call for Papers (Book Reviews)

Types of Materials Accepted:

The Asian EFL Journal accepts reviews of recently published (within the
last three years) professional books, textbooks, and course materials
dealing with theory or practice in the fields of second language teaching,
acquisition, assessment, linguistics, and related disciplines.

The Journal currently encourages two kinds of submissions, unsolicited and
solicited. Unsolicited reviewers select their own materials to review.
Solicited reviewers are contacted and asked to review materials from its
current list of availability. If you would like to be considered as a
solicited reviewer, please forward your CV with a list of publications to
the Book Review Editor at asianefljournalbookreviewsyahoo.com

All reviewers, unsolicited and solicited, are encouraged to provide
submissions about materials that they would like to suggest to colleagues
in the field by choosing materials that they feel have more positive
features than negative ones.

Length and Format:

1. Reviews should be prepared using MS Word and the format should conform
to 12 pica New Times Roman font, 1.5 spacing between lines, and 1 inch margins.
2. The reviewer(s)' full names including middle initial(s), title, school
affiliation, school address, phone number, and e-mail address should be
included at the top of the first page.
3. The complete title of the text, edition number, complete name(s) of
author(s), publisher, publisher's address (city & state), and date of
publication should be included after the reviewer(s)' identifying information.
4. Reviews should be between 500-700 words.
5. A brief biography of the author(s) should be included after the review.
6. A statement that the submission has not been previously published or is
not being considered for publication elsewhere should be included at the
bottom of the page.


Reviewers are encouraged to peruse reviews recently published in the
quarterly PDF version of the Journal for content and style before writing
their own. While creativity and a variety of writing styles are encouraged,
reviews, like other types of articles, should be concisely written and
contain certain information that follows a predictable order: a statement
about the work's intended audience, a nonevaluative description of the
material's contents, an academically worded evaluative summary which
includes a discussion of its positive features and one or two shortcomings
if applicable (no materials are perfect), and a comment about the
material's significance to the field.

1. All reviews should conform to the Journal's APA guideline requirements
and references should be used sparingly.
2. Authors should use plural nouns rather than gendered pronouns such as
he/she, his/her him/her and adhere to the APA's Guidelines for Non-Sexist
Use of Language, which can be found at

Consideration Guidelines:

Reviews will be considered on the basis of the quality of the writing as
well as the content and organization. Reviews which are accepted may be
revised by the editing staff for length, clarity, and style.

Submission Procedure: Reviews should be submitted via e-mail attachment to

Resubmissions and Future Submissions:

The Journal is always pleased to accept reviews from our colleagues in the
field. Unfortunately, however, we cannot accept all submissions. Please do
not be discouraged if your review is rejected. Some well-written reviews
are rejected because they are not appropriate for the Journal's audience.
Others may need revision before they can be published, and resubmissions
are encouraged. If, however, a review cannot be accepted, authors are
always strongly encouraged to make future submissions.

Call Deadline: 18-June-2010
